Making good decisions is a fundamental aspect of being a trusted co-worker or an excellent leader. Yet, too often, studies show, our emotions have a huge influence over the quality of our decision-making, preventing us from making sound judgments. One major study found that almost 75% of major companies have no set strategy or system in place to help inform crucial decisions. Other studies indicate that effective decision-making practices can reduce the failure rate of projects by nearly 50%.

Arriving at a good decision is too important to be left to chance. At The School of Life, we are dedicated to improving the emotional intelligence that is employed in such key areas. Our approach concerns those emotional barriers which often interfere with the decision-making process – the anxieties that negatively shape our thinking – as well as the psychological biases which determine the way in which different people respond to the same array of choices. Participants will get the chance to learn methods and techniques to help counter unhelpful instincts; when to use intuition, how to do so effectively, and when to apply more explicit criteria to the decision at hand.

In this two-hour session, we will:

  • Consider the barriers to effective decision-making; including decision fatigue, fear of regret, and a lack of self-knowledge
  • Uncover our personal decision-making style
  • Create a plan for how we will take action following our decision and track and adjust over time
  • Learn strategies for reaching sounder, wiser decisions
